Kapoho Ponds (downstairs)
This is a great place for the price. Its clean and comfortable. The kitchen is updated and stocked with most of what you would need to make meals. You can even do your laundry here. Having a warm pond right outside the door was a huge bonus. There were many fish in the pond, so it was great to have snorkeling gear at the house. This place is just a short walk to the Champagne ponds, there is a public trail, just down the street. The house is located about 15 minutes from Pahoa, the nearest town where you can find grocery, gas and food. The co-op is pretty great in town as well as the Fish market, the Thai place and Pele's kitchen. The rental is located just off the famous Red Road, which is a beautiful drive with many scenic stops. This house is about 5 minutes from the Ahalanui warm ponds. We spent most mornings their soaking and swimming. I would stay here again.

We had some last minute changes to our reservation which lead us to rent the Downstairs of this house to help accommodate a group of people we were traveling with.

If you are someone wanting to travel to this area you can see that the house prices in this community can skyrocket very quickly. If you are on a budget and this place is within it then I would really recommend it. The location is excellent - not only do you have the warm pond outside of the door, you are literally half a block from the Champagne pond and very close to an ocean walk.

The woman who manages this place, Jeana, is an incredibly helpful host and I would really recommend to anyone thinking to rent this place to get ahold of her directly if you have any questions/concerns, etc. She was an angel for us on our trip and definitely it is worth contacting her if you are looking for a place to stay!

We stayed for a week and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. The house was clean and had almost everything you need (a few more baking dishes like a sheet pan would be nice). Jackie was super helpful in guiding us to the property as we arrived at night making it difficult to identify. Highly recommend taking your morning coffee out to the lava beach to watch the sunrise, the Kopho tidal pools, and the red road.

We had a great stay here. It was our 3rd stay at this location. I would say the pond is the best feature. We could swim anytime in the fresh/salt water pond. The lower level was very nice as well. 2 bedrooms, well appointed kitchen, living and dining area was one large open area. The only problem was the polyester sheets. I found them too hot to sleep on and so dug around for cotton sheets. The location is very nice as well. It is a gated community, so very safe. If we ever go back to the Big Island, we would stay here.

have been renting this property for almost 20 years love it.

We enjoyed our stay here immensely. The property is about 30 miles from Hilo and 9 miles from Pahoa, which is the nearest town, with good options for food, most locally owned. Nice, quiet gated community with a few tide pools for snorkeling. Champagne Pond less than a 5 minute walk! We enjoyed floating in the private pond as well--just make sure to bring some sturdy water shoes! The property was clean, and we liked the tropical décor. Lovely view of the ocean from the kitchen--how I miss it! No AC, which my husband would have preferred, but most places on the big island do not have AC from what I could tell. They have lots of fans, and the beds were comfy, so we slept fine. Would love to stay here again if I ever have the chance!

Aloha! We are so glad to hear that you and your husband enjoyed your stay and not having AC didn't take away from your trip! It sounds like you were able to make use of the surrounding tide pools and ponds, and enjoyed the unforgettable ocean view! Mahalo for being such pleasant guests and for the great review and recommendation. We would love to have you back and look forward to seeing you again on your next trip!
